Is anyone aware of results of the German electric truck experiment? A7 east of Hamburg (or thereabout) has had overhead powerlines for years now - I passed there once a year, never saw an electric truck, though.

@JohanEmpa
Ah, it is even mentioned in the article - I was wrong about it being the A7: "In late 2019, an additional segment of electrified road was opened near Lübeck in Schleswig-Holstein (A1) where one Scania truck is currently being tested."
